Some people think access to so much information creates problems, however, I agree with this idea that the Internet allows people to use a lot of valuable information. This is because we can relax and save money and time.
To give my first reason, the Internet allows us to relax. For instance, when I was a freshman at Waseda University, there occursed an earthquake. Many train including the one that I was in stopped and people were confused in Tokyo. Then, I worried about my family, especially my sister. My thirteen-year-old sister was planning to go to the Tokyo Disney Land with her friends at that day. She did not have a cellphone, so no one kept touch with her. As a result, she could call my mother by using the public phone, we could met her. After that, my mother bought a cellphone for my sister and we always keep in touch with each other when an earthquake occurs. As this example illustrates, we can relax by using the information of the Intenet.
In addtion, we can save the money and the time by using the Internet.
For example, I often go to Harajuku with some friends to eat popular foods, especially pancakes. Pancakes is really popular in Japan, so there are many shops of pancakes such as cafe Kyla, eggs’n thinkgs and Hoshino-coffee. Therefore I cannot always decide which shop is most delicious and I had better go. When I was a junior high school student, I did not have a cellphone, so I could not use the Internet outside. As a result, I ate the foods that were not delicious many times. However, now, I have an iPhone and can search the most delicious shop by using the Internet. I can go to Therefore, it is time-efficient and cost-effective for me and it makes me happy. This example shows that using the Internet is time-efficient and cost-effective for me.
To sum up, I prefer this argue that the Internet enable for people to utilize a lot of useful information because we can relax and save money and time.
